Global CNG Vehicles Market 2014-2018

CNG is a low-carbon fuel for automotive, and CNG-fuelled automotive can be used as alternative fuel vehicles. Natural gas is an organic compound found deep within the earth, and it mainly consists of methane. In a CNG vehicle, natural gas is compressed and put into the vehicle through a gas dispenser. The CNG then runs through high-pressure cylinders and enters the engine compartment of the vehicle, which helps the vehicle start functioning. Although CNG is not the most pollution-free form of energy, vehicles that run on it produce relatively less harmful gases compared to vehicles that run on gasoline or diesel. CO2 and non-methane hydrocarbon emissions of CNG vehicles are lower than those of conventional fuel vehicles by 25 percent and 50 percent, respectively. TechNavio's analysts fo......

Global Automotive Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Systems Market 2014-2018

The main function of an EGR system is to warm the fuel in automotive. Warm fuel heats up more efficiently and, therefore, it gives more mileage. The adoption of this system reduces nitrogen oxides (NOx) gases coming especially from the diesel engines. EGR system helps in recirculating heat from the exhaust. When it encounters back pressure from a vehicle's exhaust, EGR valve opens and sends back the unburnt fuel into the combustion chamber. In the aim of reducing these harmful gases such as NOx and particulate matter adoption of EGR systems are being increased. Emission legislations are fixing the standards regularly. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Automotive EGR System market to grow at a CAGR of 9.55 percent over the period 2013-2018. Covered in this Report This report......
